Eden Hotel Collection Launches UK’s First Spa Academy for Talented and Aspiring Beauty Therapists

Eden Hotel Collection, a collection of nine UK boutique hotels and hotels & spas has launched an Elan Spa Academy. The Academy is a first of its kind on the UK Market and is dedicated to investing in and developing talented and aspiring Beauty Therapists as they earn while learning.

The Spa Academy is intended for qualified (or soon to be) Level 2 Beauty student looking for an alternative to a college apprenticeship, or beauty students looking to expand their skills and experience within a luxury boutique spa environment after a Level 2 apprenticeship.

Partnering with International Beauty and Holistic Academy to create a level 3 Beauty Therapy qualification, Elan Spa Academy provides the opportunity to earn while you learn on a full time basis, setting you up with the very best skills, qualifications and experience to begin your career in the industry.

Most importantly, the Academy is flexible with no weekly college courses, students will attend 3 days of training per month for 10 months, with accommodation and travel costs covered.

The Elan Spa Academy is sponsored by ESPA, which will further develop the apprentices’ skills by providing additional product and treatment training throughout each stage of the training journey.

Lisa Redding, head of HR at Eden Hotel Collection explains why the group has launched the scheme: “The new Elan Spa Academy has been designed to fast-track the skillset of aspiring beauty therapists within a high quality working and training environment, whilst underpinning the standard apprenticeship learning modules with premium product house training via ESPA. Our aim is to ensure that our apprentices develop the skills – and acquire the qualifications and experience – that are necessary to develop their career in the industry. Our purpose is to offer an entirely different approach and a really special opportunity for aspiring therapists to join a luxury spa collection at entry level.”
